Nader al-Masri is a marathon runner and one of the Gaza Strip’s top athletes. He has been running for 14 years and competed in the 2008 Olympics in Beijing.
Last Friday, he should have been running the second Palestinian marathon held in Bethlehem. But although Mr Al-Masri could practically run from his house to the start line (a mere 65 km), he could not make it.
